Yesterday was payday on the Rock
Island and it will probably )0 the
last for some time when "so much
money is distributed here at a
time. The result of the policy of re
trenchment which the company in
common with most other corpora
tions is pu-siiin;;, will hav,. shown
the com pa .n- hlu.s t,(.fl)n. an,,tilf.r
pay day comes
The worl. of cutting off in fact be
un vesteiday. when a number of
switchmen and trackmen were hud
olT, Henry F.tnpke. for :U years fore
man of the section forces here, bein
anions the number let out to reduce
expenses. When the company feels
called upon to dispense with the ser
vices of a eteran in its employ like
Mr. Kmpk.-, it begins to look blue
for the res. of tkem.
. Votlnj; on it '.
W hile it is not generally known, in
fact, while the assertion fs positively
denied by railroad men, it is under
stood tha a vote is bein;r taken
anions the trainmen in tlie employ of
the Koek Island roal in relation to a
proposed 1 eduction in w aes. This,
it is stat'-d, will affect "engineers,
lireinen. brakenu-n and conductors.
A sliort time since, as the story pics,
the orders represent ins ' those
branches were requested to send rep
resentatives to rhieaso to confer
with the illicials in relation to the
matter, a id they went. The train
men's representatives were confront
ed with statistics to warrant the
claims of he officials, and at the con
clusion of the conference they were
instructed to set the sentiment of the
employes in the matter. It is stated
that the reduction is only to be tem
porary, if carried into elTeet ! 1 davs
beins the designate I period.
It is stated that the men i!o not
take kinciy to the reduction, and
some of t he switchmen declare they
will strike rather than submit to "a
reduction In fact, it comes from
S"od authority that an official hiirh
in the or ler of switchmen visited
iiock 1 sir. in l yi Mcniay. ami that a
secret coi ferenee was held anions
the local : itchmen bebmsins to the
brot herhi o.l. at which the proposed
reduction was discussed, and as to
'.w hether t lie switchmen would sub
mit to a 1 per cent reduction, orany
at all without strikins- ' 'ie switch
men and ::11 the train and track em
ployes oi he C. fc St. P. have de
cided not to accept a l' per cent re
duction, but to strike if it is insisted
on. The position of tin- Milwaukee
men. it is understood, lias strength
ened the 'lock Island switchmen in
their con iotiort that they oucrht not
to be cut. as lias the fact that the
Uiirlington has not made a reduction
thus far in any department of it
A Switrlminn THlkw.
One Hock Island switchman who
has been in the company's employ
for maty years, said: "I have
given tie best part of my
life to tl is company, not knowing
from dav to day whether I would be
alive the next minute or not. and yet
I am in expectation of being let out
at any time. As far as wages g. no
switchaiau ever received what he
earned. All branches of railroad
work tint is the train and track
service-ii volve continuous danger on
the part of employes, but I believe
the swjtc iman lias the most hazard
ous of all. You can't pay a man for
the loss i f a limb, and ymi can't pay
his family for him after he has gone
in the di 'charge of his duty, and vet.
strange a it may seem, the railroad
strikes at those ho risk the most for
it ami do l't say anything about re
duction i 1 salaries well higher up
and out cf danger."

The Iowa supreme court has ren
dered a decision defining what con
stitutes :i peddler. A man went
from bouse to houss in Stuart taking
verbal orders for spoons, albums,
etc. A few days later the merchan
dise was shipped to Stuart and de
livered to the purcascrs by one Cun
ningham. While thus engaged he
waiTarrej-ted for violating an ordi
nance of he town prohibiting ped
dlers from selling or offering for sale
roods 01 merchandise along the
streets 01 from house to house. The
case linrllv reached the supreme
court w hire the defendant was or
dered discharged. The court says
that the authorities are not agreed
as to wh: t constitutes a peddler, but
it adds that its "attention has not
been call ;d to any authority which
holds that a person who delivers
"oods previously sold ly another is
a peddlei within the ordinary use of
that tern. The defendant did noth-ino-
that .vas prohibited by ordinance
and should have been acquitted."
The dechion is of general interest.

The bride and groom were the re
cipients of manv presents, among the
most noticeable of which was a solid
silver tea set lined with S'dd, given
by the Koek Island Lumber compa

company hold the fair bride, who for
some time past has been employed by
the company as stenographer.
Mr. and Mrs. Williams will spend
their honeymoon in the west, after
which they will make their home
with the bride's parents here.
The groom is the son of K. S. Wil
liams. Sr., a prominent citizen of
Wyoming, and for some time past
has been employed as salesman in
Simon & Mnsenfeldor's clothing
house. The bride needs no introduc
tion to the people of Koek Island, as
she was born and reared here, and is
one of the city's most gifted daugh

To Hennepin and ltaek.
Yesterday morning i'3 of Daven
port's citizens paid a pleasant and in
tjresting visit to the scene of the
Hennepin canal operations, going via
the C, K. I. & V. and li. I. & P.
roads. The Tribune this morning
describes the excursion:
There they were received by C'apt.
L. L. Wheeler, the engineer in charge
of the canal work. After showiug
the maps in his office, he escorted the
party over the work from Milan to
the upper end of Carr's island. where
the bulk of the work is now being
done- in building the dam and lock
No. 30. There are over 300 men now
employed on this part of the work.
A large number of the men work all
nisht, so as to get their part of the
work above high water before the
river rises. The branch has been
turned off so that you can walk over
to the canal work. The government
is doing all this with 8-hour labor.
Contractor Lynch has a large number
of men and teams working down on
Big Island, and will soon have that
part of the work completed. The re
turn trip was made to liock Island in
16 minutes, by a special train
kindly furnished by Superintendent
II. B. Sudlow, of the Koek Island &
Peoria, and the party was home at 11
The party was in charge of E. W.
Baker, who had invited 71 to go, he
having previously in the past two
years had charge of two Hennepin
excursion parties by steamboat and
one by electric cars. On leaving
Davenport he informed those that
went and those that remained at
home on occount of the rain, that he
soon intended to have his fifth excur
sion to theTHennepin canal by elec
tric cars, and on that trip he intend
ed to exclude the men and invite 71
ladies to take the trip, and that he
felt sure that all would go even if it

Rainmaker Jewell Perfectly Confident of
H i Powers to Ait Rain
C. B. Jewell, president of the Jew
ell Kain company, accompanied by
his w ife and child, was a guest at
the Kimftell house, Davenport, yes
terday. His mission was not to pro
duce a rain, but was merely one of a
To a Times reporter, who -called
on him, Mr. Jewell stated his rain
making operations were, in all prob-J
ability, ended for this season, as he
was not aware of any locality in j
which rain was needed. Should he
be sent elsewhere, it would most
likely be to Texas, where the grass
is sail1, to be languishing owing to
the neglect of Jupiter l'luvius. The
crops, he said, seemed to be doing
all right, and such being the case
there was no further need of his ser
vices .is a rainmaker just now. So
tonight he will h ave for Goodlaml,
Kan., to resume his duties as chief
dispatcher of ths- Bock Island road
at that point.
C'.ainiK the Hi;rth.
Mr. Jewell assumes credit for the
past t wo rainstorms that have visited
this locality, and asserts that during
uic tour r.oniiis ot li:s operations as
a rainmaker his efforts have in no in
stance been attended by f.-ilure. He
has jtit received a communication
from t he ( hicasliaw, Kan., hoard of
trade, which embodied a series of
eulogistic resolutions at the success
that attended his labors there, which
he modestly puinted to as an evidence
of w hat he had done.
Owing to the location he declared
that Fruitland was the hardest point
at which he had operated, and in
proof of the fact that he hr.d some
thing to do with the rain there ami
here cited the fact that the storms
were unattended by thunder or light
ning. Mr. Jewell declares, however, that
he docs not supplant nature he
merely assists it.
